The 12th Nutrient Requirements of Swine committee is requesting ingredient composition data from the feed industry to be considered within the revised edition. The nutrients of interest include those of the previous edition as well as nutrients associated with environmental sustainability and additional fiber components. Data received will not be individually shared or released.

Parties interested in submitting primary data should email [email protected] for further instructions. The committee asks that all data be submitted by June 15.

The National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine established the committee to develop the 12th Nutrient Requirements of Swine. NASEM’s charge to the committee is to “conduct an in-depth review of the scientific literature on the nutritional needs of swine and prepare a report that revises and updates the 11th edition of Nutrient Requirements of Swine.”

The committee consists of Tom Burkey, University of Nebraska, Laura Greiner, Iowa State University, Sung Woo Kim, North Carolina State University, Marie-Pierre Létourneau-Montminy, Laval University, Crystal Levesque, South Dakota State University, Yanhong Liu, University of California – Davis, Martin Nyachoti, University of Manitoba, John Patience, chair, Iowa State University, Amy Petry, University of Missouri, Jason Woodworth, Kansas State University, Pedro Urriola, University of Minnesota and Jaap Van Milgen, INRAE (France).

As diverse as this group is, they all have one thing in common – a desire to work together to fulfill not only the expectations of NASEM, but also the expectations of swine nutritionists around the world who will utilize and depend on this report in the future to do their jobs as effectively as possible.

Most of the deliberations of the committee are required by NASEM to be completely confidential. And all of the information included in the final report must be based on the refereed literature to ensure a high standard of information.
